is a very open ended game and many unexpected situations
may occur that the rules do not specifically cover.
As a general way of handling these situation when they
happen, majority rules is always the quick and easy
solution. As questions come up we will attempt to address
are cards which gives the individual holding the cards
the latitude to "pick the disc" from his/her opponents
bag... Is the mini-disc/marker disc considered to be
a NORMAL disc?
can NOT pick a mini when the card says "disc". That
refers to the standard discs normally used to play disc
golf. If anyone gives you grief over this just point
out that the only card that actually refers to a "mini",
the silhouette of the Disc Golfer on the card is actually
holding a "mini".
is the grenade thrown?
grenade is a regular backhand throw with the disc beginning
its flight upside down. So just hold the disc upside
down and throw it high into the air like a knife shot.
The disc will flip in the air and then fall in the direction
of your throwing hand. This allows you to get around
objects that may be in your way.
do you play "Score Swap" if you're only playing
a general rule if a card cannot be carried out completely
it is considered a "dead card". The player
with that card in their hand is simply stuck with it
until it can be played, or until the end of the round.
In the case of Score Swap the last line on the card
is: "that player then chooses the disc you will
use on the upcoming drive." If there is no hole
10 then the card cannot be carried out completely and
cannot be played. If you know you are going to be playing
a 9-hole round, and you are not playing Poker Run style,
we recommend you remove the Score Swap card from the
deck before you begin that round.
the "Not Two Meters" card still good, has
the rule been changed?
far as we know the rule was changed, then changed back
again. If your disc is more than 2 meters up in a tree,
it is still considered OB for 2005. So the card is currently
still valid. In upcoming versions of Ript, the card
will be changed out with a new one in case the PDGA
decides to change the rule permanently.
"New Hands" is played, can I play cards before
I am forced to discard them?
when a new card is played it interrupts the card played
before it. The most recent card played is handled first,
then you work your way backwards until you get to the
New Hands card.
Swap and CTP?
"lie swap" card is meant to help players of
lesser skill get a few CTP's. If you swap your bad drive
with someone under the basket, YOU get the CTP card
